This diagram illustrates the length and width of our Corrugated Bubble. There are minimums and maximums to how long and wide we can cut.
Our Corrugated Bubble is made with upcycled corrugate (scraps from our corrugated box manufacturing line). The material is 100% recycled and made with 95% post-consumer waste. It is also curbside recyclable and naturally biodegradable.
Traditional bubble wrap is almost always made with virgin plastic. While it is typically thin film recyclable, it is not curbside recyclable. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Corrugated Bubble is perfectly sized for your needs and allows you to cushion and protect your good without shipping excess air and material.
Yes! Corrugated Bubble is one of several void fill alternatives we offer, all of which are plastic-free, curbside recyclable alternatives to traditional plastic bubble. Corrugated Bubble is one of our favorites because it is both upcycled and recycled! But we stand behind all of our eco-friendly void fill options. Our Definitive Guide to Protective Packaging discusses these at length. Here are two of our most popular cushioning solutions besides Corrugated Bubble.
GreenWrap: This honeycomb paper ships flat and then expands (using a proprietary dispenser) to create cushioning. GreenWrap offers a beautiful presentation. It also comes on a large roll, and you can tear off precisely the amount you need. It is currently made with virgin paper. While it is made with certified sustainable virgin tree fibers, we recommend recycled paper over virgin wherever possible.
Packaging Paper: We offer many different packaging paper options, all 100% recycled and curbside recyclable.
This product can be used as a plastic-free replacement for almost any situation you might consider using bubble wrap! But we believe Corrugated Bubble is even more versatile. Not only does it replace traditional plastic bubble, it can also replace air pillows and packaging peanuts - two other void fill options that are typically virgin and lead brands to ship excessive amounts of air.
To replace air pillows or packaging peanuts, create a ball out of Corrugated Bubble. Stretch the Corrugated Bubble and crumple it up to make “corrugated nests” to use as cushioning under your product.
To replace bubble wrap, use one of these two methods. Wrap your fragile products in appropriately-sized Corrugated Bubble before placing them inside your box.
Alternatively, order Corrugated Bubble that fits your box perfectly and use it as a soft pad to line the bottom or top of your shipping box.
We offer Corrugated Bubble in ¼”, ½” and ¾” thicknesses. The thinnest option is ¼” and is made with one sheet of C flute corrugated. The ½” option is made with two sheets of corrugated board shredded together, and the ¾” option is made with three sheets of corrugated board.
Use thicker options when you need more cushioning and padding in your shipping box. If you’re not sure which option to choose, order free samples to help you experience the differences between them firsthand.
